Juneau’s Talisa Rhea today became the third consecutive member of the Seattle University women’s basketball team to be named Independent Player of the Week by College Sports Madness.

The 5-foot-11 senior guard had her fingerprints all over Sunday’s 69-55 victory over Portland in which she bagged 11 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals.

It was the fourth straight game Rhea scored double digits while the steals were a season high.

Through the first 9 games Rhea leads the team in assists [5.4] and is second in both scoring [12.3] and rebounding [5.2].

“She can influence the game as a scorer, a passer or a defender,” Seattle coach Joan Bonvicini told the school website. “She is the ultimate team player and winner.”
